DEAC Gala: Friday, October 4th, 2013
Please join us on Friday, October 4th, 2013 at the 5th Annual DEAC Gala!
The Gala is open to all: students, staff, faculty, and the greater Winston-Salem community.
The Gala is hosted by students from the Wake Forest School of Medicine: all proceeds from the dinner and silent auction benefit the DEAC Free Clinic which provides medical care to the undeserved of Forsyth County.
All of our support and funding comes from sponsors like you.
We look forward to celebrating our service and success with you at the Gala!

Where can I park?
The Wake Forest Biotech Place parking deck will be open to the guests of the Gala. There is also plenty of street parking available in downtown Winston-Salem.
I'm a student, and I can't spare the $60. Is there a way I can get discounted tickets?
Yes! We wholeheartedly invite students to come celebrate with us the Gala, and have designed a scheme to make this possible for those of us on a tight budget. If you can help DEAC clinic fundraise at least $40 with the online donation system (please provide us with the names and email addresses of people who HAVE AGREED to donate) or acquire a corporate sponsorship, in exchange we will provide you with one ticket to the Gala. Easy! If you would like to bring a guest, help us fundraise at least $80 for two Gala tickets or acquire a corporate sponsorship. The more the merrier!
